A summary is presented at each ARIN meeting during the Registration
Services report: https://www.arin.net/participate/meetings/reports/ARIN_XXVI/PDF/Friday/nobile_rsd_update.pdf
(slide 4)  This is a total cumulative slide and reflects space in
/16 equivalents; we can work on getting a more granular breakdown 
if that would be useful.  This has lines for returned, revoked (for
non-payment), and reclaimed (generally due to fraud).

Non-payment of resources under RSA results in revocation.

I'm not sure how this information relates to "the problem in legacy 
space", but in any case if you need more details, please let me know.
